Sociological Data Archive (SDA) of the Institute of Sociology collects computerised data files from sociological surveys. Czech survey research has a long tradition, but it was deeply affected by communist regime. A debate concerning the formation of a social science data archive was opened in the late 60s. The main access to the SDA'data library is provided on the Internet. The Archive pays a great attention to promoting secondary analysis and co-operates in large research projects.
